Patricia Leighton & Del Geist

Patricia Leighton’s earthworks reflect the history of place and the changes frequently caused by industrialization as well as naturally occurring interventions. Seeking to balance the equilibrium within what is often a fragile system, Leighton creates extensions to what already exists. Del Geist’s massive freestanding sculptures are fused with geology exposing the pure beauty of slate, sandstone, and brick by juxtaposing those materials with steel constructions. As a team, both Leighton and Geist develop projects associated with transportation in its multiple forms, which allow them to integrate their own art practice into site-specific works tailored to the landscape and environment. Leighton and Geist are each recipients of a Pollack Krasner Grant.
